The BA (Hons) Criminology and Policing degree gives you an in-depth knowledge of contemporary policing and criminal justice. You’ll learn from both academics and invited speakers with real-world policing experience, getting a genuine feel for key issues related to police work.
In the first two years you concentrate on foundations of criminology and sociology.
If you are keen to work for the police, you have the opportunity to apply to be a special constable. This experience puts you in a great position to pursue a career in the police force or to work in the police service after graduation.
